Job Description


Position Description:


The Division of Transplant Surgery in the Department of Surgery at the University of Washington School of Medicine is seeking applications and nominations for a full-time faculty position in transplant surgery at both the UWMC Montlake (ML) campus and Seattle Children’s Hospital (SCH). Due to funding constraints, the faculty position is at the Assistant Professor level with no tenure. Assistant Professors WOT are eligible for multi-year appointments with a 12-month service duration (July 1 to June 30). Faculty with 12-month service terms are paid for 11 months of service (July-June), which equates to one month of paid time off. The title, pay, and rank are commensurate with training, skills, and experience, with a projected start date of Fall 2024.

The base compensation range for this employment as an Assistant Professor (WOT) will be $30,000 – $33,334 per month ($360,000 – $400,008 yearly). The base salary will be consistent with the candidate’s experience and qualifications, or as required by a US Department of Labour prevailing wage assessment. This range includes base compensation supplied through the UW Physicians (UWP) practice plan, as well as base salary provided by the University. Other pay for this role may include an incentive through UWP. Please keep in mind that University benefit determinations and calculations solely take into account remuneration granted by the university. Compensation supplied by the UW Physicians (UWP) practice plan may qualify for distinct benefits granted by that organisation.

For practitioners enrolled in one of the physicians’ practice plans, additional benefits may be accessible at https://faculty.uwmedicine.org/wp-content/uploads/2019/09/UWP-Benefits-Summary-for-recruitingef-edits-v3.pdf.

This position’s primary tasks include participation in adult and paediatric surgical transplantation operations, clinics, selection committees, and organ recovery. The transplant surgeon will also be responsible for teaching and training residents, fellows, and medical students. The responsibilities also include complete involvement in the regular call schedule (adult and/or paediatric) for all abdominal organ systems. The primary venue of practice for this position will be UWMC-ML (roughly 60% of the time), with the remainder spent at Seattle Children’s Hospital. All University of Washington academics are involved in teaching, research, and service.



A successful candidate must have a medical degree (or international equivalent) and be board certified or board eligible by the American Board of Surgery. Candidates must have completed either a one-year approved surgery fellowship programme, a one-year paediatric abdominal transplant post-fellowship, or fellowship training with one month of paediatric transplant experience. Must be licenced to practise medicine in Washington at the time of the appointment.

Graduates of foreign (non-U.S.) medical schools must successfully complete all three parts of the U.S. Medical Licencing Exam (USMLE) or equivalent, as established by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, in order to be eligible for University sponsorship for an H-1B visa.



Interested candidates should apply through Interfolio with a cover letter outlining their qualifications for the position, a current curriculum vitae, contact information for four professional references, including email addresses, and a statement outlining their past and future contributions to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
